MSU Student Exhibition Center proudly presents The Recital of Flesh: Transcending Time and Transmutation, a show featuring original works by three different artists in three different mediums. Enjoy Ian Minich: Wet-plate Collodion Tin-type Photographs; Jenni Lombardi: Sculpture and Mateo Rueda: Digital Art.

About the Artists:

Ian Minich explores the wet plate collodion process, which results in photographs made directly on aluminum or glass. Minich tries to surpass traditional portraiture and takes tintypes to a level rarely explored with the process, by creating images with more narrative qualities that mesh the modern era with the past.

Jenni Lombardi began as a painter, but now fully embraces clay and ceramics as her primary medium. She is fascinated by how humans are connected to animals, specifically through primal instinct and genetics. Jenni explores mutation and genetic engineering as a metaphor to demonstrate how easily connected and interchangeable humans and animals are, whether instinctually or genetically. Working with a malleable material such as clay, Jenni satisfies that part of human nature within herself, indulging in her curiosity and need to control.

Mateo Rueda works with schematics in the form of Bitácora, a journal that is related to the observations explorers would make about their journeys, where he merges the schematics with a set of animal sketches. In a taxonomic manner the work is exposed in different compositions, each piece talks about a set of species or subspecies of the animal kingdom.
